M⭐️MA GIOIELLI enters the world of MC2 Saint Barth

Happy Monday with “Be Cozy and Chic” to you all, with June just starting and this means so many new collaborations come to life for us at M⭐MA GIOIELLI... it seems like a dream!!

But don’t wake us up!

Last Monday when I wrote to you from Milan, I was about to go to the headquarters of MC2 Saint Barth, the world-famous brand for its fantastic, colourful costumes for men, women and children. An emotion I can’t even begin to describe even after a week since the meeting. The news is that the company believes in us and has given us an incredible opportunity: you will find our bracelets with mini stars and coloured cords in a range of ten different colours in many of their flagship stores.

With a trembling hand, I list these to you:

MILAN

FORTE DEI MARMI

RICCIONE

ALASSIO

PIETRASANTA

ROME

CAPRI

TAORMINA

PORTO CERVO

PORTO ROTONDO

SANTA MARGHERITA

There’s nothing I need to add. We’re happy, extremely happy, to see that more and more people believe in our brand.

M⭐️MA GIOIELLI is a dream, as I like to define it when I'm asked what this ambitious project means to me, but full of so, so many satisfying moments. I want to sincerely thank MC2 Saint Barth for allowing us to be part of their flagship stores and we are ready for this wonderful new adventure, full of positive energy and desire to do an outstanding job.

Next Monday I will tell you about another wonderful project we have up our sleeve…oops it’s no longer a secret, but anyway it’s an idea that’s taking shape and that in the autumn will be on the market....

Wishing you all a great week!

Big hugs

A fabulous setting for our latest photo shoot: the Pallanca Exotic Garden

A fabulous setting for our latest photo shoot: the Pallanca Exotic Garden

A Happy Monday to you all with “Be cozy and chic”. Last week I took a bit of a break as my commitments were numerous with long busy days, let's say that I’m now ready to go again! Occasionally one needs a short break.

Last Friday, we had the photo shoot for our new collection with a wonderful team. Young but already real professionals, we had loads of fun and this time we chose a wonderful location in my beloved Bordighera: the Pallanca exotic garden.

I've always loved this place. Giacomo Pallanca, the owner, and his wife Monika immediately welcomed my request to use this corner of paradise as a frame for our jewellery collection. Just a phone call, a nice chat and we were soon on the same wavelength as them, that led to a photographic shoot which I can’t wait to be able to show you.

The history of the Pallanca Exotic Garden goes back to 1800 “where designing a garden is not just about pure determination of the will. The creative activity of the landscape designer is subject to inevitable constraints. Climate, context and architecture must be properly considered in the design of a project that is for man; not just as a property, but as an opportunity. The garden must reflect the image of its creator and, at the same time, educate him in the elaboration of a sensitivity far from any individualism; the garden is for man, but man is nature.” First Giacomo (1861) then his son Bartolomeo and today Giacomo and Giobatta look after this corner of paradise where the climate is mild all year round and from their house and garden they have majestic views over the Ligurian Sea. The eye can see from Sanremo to the Côte d'Azur passing over a thousand shades of blue and cobalt blue. “The Garden is rich of fine and extremely rare examples and contributes with its range of plants to be amongst the most important botanical gardens in Europe and to the realisation of the exotic sector of Montjuich in Barcelona. The Garden is an obligatory and constant destination for scholars and lovers. Since 1989, thanks to Barth (1944) son of Giacomo, the garden, ordered taxonomically and extensively to maximise its enjoyability, is open to the public. Everyone can visit it and admire its natural beauty. Along the sandstone slope, an ancient testimony to a submerged past, one can climb the steps carved into the rock that wind through dry wall terraces. The most exemplary specimens with its rarities form, together with the many varieties of flowers of the garden, a unique framework with the sea as its backdrop.”

To have spent a day in this marvellous setting has been a unique and unforgettable experience for all of us. So, to the whole Pallanca family, and especially to Giacomo and Monika, our most sincere thanks for the wonderful welcome and eagerness to help.

Wishing you all a good week,

Ramona

From Milan to Turin, passing through Paris

From Milan to Turin, passing through Paris

Happy Monday to you all with Be Cozy and Chic. Summer is almost upon us with sunny, hot days... maybe even a bit too hot.
Lots of plans are taking shape and appointments confirmed in our calendar that I will slowly but surely tell you all about.

Today I am writing to you from Milan, where I've had a very important meeting and now I'm leaving, as tomorrow the first Private Sale with Mire Cashmire Maison will take place in Turin.

So this week, less miles on the counter but I've been travelling more by plane: Thursday I'll be in Paris, so let's hope that the city of love brings us luck for a future project we're planning there. I adore Paris, its streets, the historic quartiers and the more modern areas, the bridges over the river Seine and the incredible view going up to the top of the Eiffel Tower. So I'm truly happy to be working in that city again.

Then next week off to London as well, straight after the shooting of our new collection that, as some of you will seen, is created entirely, or almost, of snow flakes.

I'll talk to you about London and how the shooting goes next time! I think I've now updated you for this week .

Thank you all for following my blog with such dedication and love.

Until next Monday!
Hugs and kisses

Leontine Vintage: a marvellous discovery

Leontine Vintage: a marvellous discovery

Happy Monday with “Be Cozy and Chic” to all of you who follow my blog for all this time, that has by now become an established appointment.

This week I want to tell you about a special person who I got to know by chance in Milan at our PR office, before the last Press Day. Behind this new brand, Leontine Vintage, that has had a rapid success creating Florentine straw hats entirely handmade with fun writing in sequins by the designer, is a wonderful person called Eva.

She is shy, discreet, elegant and very polite, hard-working and pays attention to the smallest detail on her hats. As she personally arranges her exhibition space at the PR office on a grey day in Milan last March, I meet her glance while I am also arranging the last details of the latest collection to present it to the press. First a smile, then we start chatting and I ask her how she had embarked on such an exciting adventure and who her suppliers were of the fabrics and materials she uses.

So we chat for an hour or perhaps two, and what strikes me is her humility, yet I learn that she has already been in many important magazines in a very short period and has already collaborated with prestigious names, she is enthusiastic to tell me about this passion of hers, without admitting that her brand of hats has made many people including journalists, actors and not only, crazy for them! When I left Milan, I thought what a nice, precise and fine person she was.

A few days later we were invited to a round table in Padua, she came from Milan and as you know, I came from Bordighera where we met again at the CBA Legal and Tax Office, and so we decide to go back to Milan together and we chatted as if we had known each other forever!

As I always say, the fine business adventures always have a person of substance behind them and this is the case with Eva and Leontine Vintage: she has already gone a long way, yet I'm positive it's just the beginning of many great successes. A sincere thank you to her for being a sincere friend and to Leontine Vintage, a serious brand, really and truly Made in Italy, able to satisfy every woman's desires for hats.

I'll be in touch next Monday hopefully with a very important piece of news!!

A big hug!

The New Collection: St. Moritz

The New Collection: St. Moritz

Happy Monday with “Be Cozy and Chic”! We are dedicating the whole week to the organisation of the next shooting shoot which is going to be at the beginning of June.

Finally, after months of work, new designs and preparation of samples, the new collection is ready to be presented. It is inspired by the mountains and the snow, the sound of a crackling fireplace in a chalet immersed in snow and dinners with friends which go on into the early hours of the morning without even realising it. In short, a collection with the scents of Engadin, a place that I adore in the winter as well as in the summer, landscapes that offer peacefulness and wonderful fresh air. My journeys in these mountains were a source of inspiration for us, a night with a heavy snowfall to then wake up to snow-covered surroundings.

A delicate, modern and elegant collection that can be worn with jeans during the day to the office, at the park with the young ones, in the evening for a quick pizza with friends or for an important dinner. In short, something that can be worn all day that is discreet yet refined.

It took some time to create this collection but it is finally ready to be photographed and presented. We have a new model, Francesca, who we got to know by chance, thanks to our PR office. She is from Milan, seemingly shy with freckles on her angelic face, a simple beauty with a contagious smile.

I cannot wait! Everything is almost ready...with a fabulous location in my beloved hometown of Bordighera: it is a magical place with breathtaking views. I’m not going to tell you anymore as I don’t want to ruin the surprise.

Wishing you all a great week!

With love,

Ramona

M⭐️ma Gioielli in Padua for a round-table: emerging designers and commercial enterprise

Happy Monday with “Be Cozy and Chic” to you all after a very challenging week for us with hundreds of miles on the clock and a fantastic new experience that I want to tell you all about!

I was contacted by the lawyer, Ilaria Antonella Belluco who was organising a round-table last Thursday 4th May at the law offices, “CBA Studio Legale e Tributario” in Padua; this law firm also has other law offices in Italy and abroad. Although I wasn’t planning to go to Padua last week, her overwhelming kindness, gave me the enthusiasm to combine my other commitments with this trip to the Veneto region. It was a wonderful experience and source of valuable information, both from the point of view of a start-up on legal and practical levels, but it also turned out to be a very constructive and interesting debate.

It was an informative occasion to learn about issues and opportunities for fresh faces in the fashion world; there were inventions from us as designers and from lawyers, Mrs Belluco, Mrs Sartori, Mrs Carprara, Director of the Fashion Consortium and Mrs. Gobbo. Fifteen fashion designers were selected and it was an honour to be part of the group.

I was introduced to many new and interesting people, some from my own field, and to see that the problems we had incurred were similar, if not the same, to those faced by many other start-up companies present. Dialogue, confrontation and debate on important points highlighting that legal help can often be the solution to problems that seem to be unresolvable, and a good and prepared lawyer can easily streamline the practices and give useful advice from brand registration to the creation of a company. Mrs Belluco, was not only an excellent moderator, but she is an important lawyer, a charming and energetic woman and she created a convivial environment by combining fashion and law in a harmonious way.

I don’t need to tell you what a positive experience it was for me and indeed a great honour to be able to talk about our dream, projects andthe small or bigger difficulties that we have encountered up to now.

Wishing you all a positive week!

Until next Monday!

Positive synergies between women

Positive synergies between women

Happy Monday to you all with “Be Cozy and Chic”.

The time flies by and May is already upon us with the sun, warm days and the first, almost summer-like evenings. All this makes me happy and full of energy for our forthcoming appointments.

As you all know May is the month that many countries celebrate mothers and so we too at M⭐️MA Gioielli wanted to prepare a gift idea for mothers to be able share with their young children. You all know about ourRebeccanecklace that is often known as the “necklace with the stars”. Well, we’ve decided to combine it with a bracelet with a small silver star with pink or blue cord: our “a star is born” project that is dedicated to new mothers, to those who will soon become mothers and to those who have been mothers for many years.

And for this reason, we have started a great collaboration with two women, who I much admire and who are already mothers but who have not lost the desire to be business women as well: Sabrina and Alessandra.

Sabrina, with her enduring clean and rigorous beauty, with overwhelming kindness and energy and a desire to create things that last over time, a lover of the most exclusive cashmere, mother of two girls, wife for many years, she lives in Turin and loves to travel.

Alessandra, originally from Perugia, presents an elegant and sophisticated beauty; she has worked in the field of fashion, she is married and is mother to a small blond creature; she lives in Lugano.

A great synergy, a strong bond as only true women can create, with the desire to organise and create something simple yet sophisticated.A collaboration that I am sure will give all of us great strength and enormous satisfaction. I cannot reveal any more for the moment, but soon I will tell you about this important and wonderful project.

Wishing you all a great week.

Monte Carlo, now to Milan and then an exclusive event in Sanremo!

Monte Carlo, now to Milan and then an exclusive event in Sanremo!

Happy Monday with “Be Cozy and Chic” to all, we - rather I -have returned exhausted after four days in Monte Carlo, but what with having a temperature and a very sore throat, I have managed to get through this exciting new adventure. Many new clients, some known faces, a mix of nationalities, cultures and interests. But on reflection it was positive beyond all expectations. Monte Carlo is an important town for many sectors, but I must say that TOP MARQUES, which I did not know beforehand, was important and productive for us.

On Wednesday I will going to Milan with a friend for an important project for this coming winter: lots of new things from our packaging to much much more.

Next weekend we all leave, finally on holiday… Cristina to Sardinia and I leave for a few days in Puglia.... I wish! I was just kidding because actually, on Saturday 29thApril from 5-9pm, we have our next M⭐MA event in Sanremo in Via Matteotti 72 at Suite à Parfum.

After the fantastic success, a few weeks ago at Intra Gioielli in Bordighera, we wanted to repeat a cocktail event in Sanremo at the other boutique where you can find M⭐MA GIOIELLI. In fact, I want to take this opportunity to thank Giorgio, the owner, who immediately believed in us and Lia who also truly wanted M⭐MA GIOIELLI in the boutiques in the Festival town and in Santa Margherita Ligure.

This is the week that awaits us, but we are ready and enthusiastic.

We look forward to seeing you at Suite à Parfum.

Hugs to all,

Cristina and I are working on the new collection unabatedly and we’re really pleased with what we will soon be presenting to you all.

I love organising our events down to every last detail and we have already chosen the place that will be host our next photo shoot. So many things are cooking and we never have enough time!
